tnhunter, yeah i'm really just a recreational digger and enjoy getting out about a dozen times during the season. If I end up with a dry pound or two that's great. I just love getting out and hunting ginseng. They do have some really dumb laws in place as far as transporting ginseng. I'm not really sure what the governments business it is what I do with roots I dug on my time on private property. Oh wait, could it be they have to get their cut..:ohmy: How silly of me. How dare we make a little money without the government knowing about it..:P

herbuyer, in regards to the quality of roots I dig. I do know what you are saying about low land roots and mountain roots. I have hunted both and there is a huge difference. The majority of the time I hunt on private property that is very close to the national park. (very close to Gatlinburg) Don't worry I use a gps to make sure I don't cross the park line..;) I would say 90 percent of everything I dug this year were high mountain roots and very similar to what you would find in the hills of NC. The mountain side of Blount county holds much of the same terrain and habitat as well.

Back to NC prices are they moving any? The start of buying was the best since then the price hasn't moved from 700 for about 3 weeks now. Any thoughts
